copymon provides file copying processes with a progress bar. Neither cp nor rsync provide means to monitor the copying process, nor a progress bar. copymon is a wrapper which performs a scan of the directory to be copied and collects information about the files to be copied. After that, it spawns the actual copying program (which can be cp, rsync, or tar) and monitors its progress. copymon can be easily enhanced to support more programs and can be extended to provided different types of progress bars.
ZedLog is a robust cross-platform input logging tool (A.K.A., a key logger). It is based on a flexible data logging system which makes it easy to get the required data. It features logging of all keyboard and mouse events, a replay simulation tool, logging to a file, and hiding in the background.
PerfMonger is an yet another performance monitoring tool. The monitoring targets of PerfMonger are similar to the ones of sysstat (CPU usages, IO usages, etc.), but PerfMonger can collect and report performance information very frequently (the reporting interval of sysstat is 1 second at minimum, but PerfMonger can use a much smaller interval such as 0.5 seconds or 0.01 seconds) and can display performance information in both human-readable and machine-readable formats.
